This vegan roasted vegetable meal prep has a tangy turmeric tahini sauce for you to drizzle over everything!
If there’s one thing I know about fall, it’s that sheet pan meals are king. I like to do ‘clean out the fridge’ meal preps, where I find anything in the bottom of my crisper and throw it on the sheet pan.
Sometimes I use one of these 7 Spice Blends on the veggies, but for today’s recipe, I whipped up a delicious turmeric tahini sauce!
Don’t forget to pin this post to save it for later!
We love this roasted veggie meal prep because
- it’s vegan and gluten-free
- you can switch out the veggies for whatever you might have on hand
- the turmeric tahini sauce is basically liquid sunshine
How to make roasted vegetable meal prep bowls
Like I mentioned, you can swap out these vegetables for a number of different vegetables including sweet potato, brussels sprouts, carrots and bell peppers.
- Cook up some quinoa…I use my rice cooker to cook quinoa!
- For this recipe, I used 6 cups of butternut squash cubes, broccoli and cauliflower, and simply tossed in olive oil, then sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper. (6 cups sounds like a lot, but they will shrink during roasting and you’ll end up with about 1 cup of roasted veggies per meal prep bowl.)
- Divide the cooked quinoa and a can of cooked chickpeas between four meal prep bowls, then portion out the veggies.
- Shake up the turmeric tahini sauce. Portion out into small condiment containers…don’t drizzle the sauce on until just before you serve!
How long are these roasted vegetable meal prep bowls good for? You can store these in the fridge for up to 4 days. I don’t recommend freezing roasted vegetables as they can end up slimy.
Can I swap the chickpeas? Sure! You could swap for a chicken breast if you are not vegan (here’s my recipe for Perfect Baked Chicken Breast). You could also swap for baked tofu if you’d prefer! Here’s my favorite Baked Tofu Recipe (note- tofu will not stay crispy for meal prep)
Can I swap the turmeric tahini sauce? Sure! You could use this Maple Tahini Dressing, or the Almond Butter sauce from these Cold Sesame Noodle Bowls. You could also use this Balsamic Reduction for a totally different flavor!
